A lot of awesome health trends took over in 2015: rowing classes, morning workout raves, zombie runs…But there were just as many fitness fails as successes. Here, we round up five trends that totally took over last year, but need to be gone. For good.
1. Searching for the next #ThighGap
There’s fitspiration and then there’s faux fitspiration, something that passes itself off as healthy but really isn’t. In 2015, the thigh gap craze finally died down, but only because it was the gateway to a slew of other unhealthy measurements of what a “perfect body” is. Thighbrows (a set of folds located at the top of the thighs, separating them from the butt), bikini bridge (the space between your bikini bottoms and hip bones when you lie down) and hot dog legs (photos of slim, tan legs) all took over Instagram this year. And they are all unhealthy barometers of what is healthy and what isn’t.
